Sean Hully's creates music to throw a toe to!

I can see how Hully's music might be fun in a live environment, surrounded by friends and good times.

There is no doubt the songs on Interaction are compelling enough to satisfy even the most seasoned rhythm and blues fan.

Having said that, there are moments on Interaction when one wonders what Hully was thinking? Come To The Sea utilizes a Celtic recorder intro, which opens up to a fairly straightforward pop infused harmony. It all just sounds so geeky!

Then on the tune Respect Is A State Of Mind, Hully utilizes churning guitars and slightly more aggressive beats to get his ideas across.

This song works well more for what Hully left out than what he put in.

It's Alive here is robust with jazzy notions and fiery passion. Hully certainly captures a sounds with this fine tune and others of this kind including Not Fair and the title track Interaction.

The styles that mix and mingle on Interaction may have been part of the whole concept of the whole collection of songs. If that was the intention, then fine, I can live with it. But as a whole it seems like Hully can't really decide what directions to go in.

This is a very dis-jointed series of recordings which show a lot of promise with each track. - Review by Jeff Macklin Peterborough Examiner
